The Infamous Charcoal Mask

The Infamous Charcoal Mask

Neutrals

If you’ve cried real tears or lost an eyebrow doing a DIY Charcoal mask, this video is for you!

I had a really bad breakout (I’ve always had acne prone skin) a few months ago which is why you guys haven’t gotten any videos from me.

I didn’t want to go outside, much less make Youtube videos, be seen during my radio show & going to events. But this wasn’t going to fix itself so I had to do something.

I tried the charcoal mask because it’s good for removing impurities and great for oily skin. I’ve been watching a lot of DIYs, talking to friends & my skincare expert & decided to try it. Yes, I shed a few thug tears, thankfully I didn’t lose an eyebrow but it still hurt like hell!! Masks are supposed to be relaxing! What’s relaxing about ripping glue off your face?!

I did some experimenting of my own & came up with this here! This mask has helped with my healing process & is PAIN FREE unlike those other DIY charcoal masks!

**If have acne prone skin, are allergic or unsure about using certain products on your face talk to your dermatologist or skincare professional before trying anything. When trying new products, test on a small area and wait to see your reaction before putting the product all over your face.**

Curly Hair Questions

Curly Hair Questions

Neutrals

Our hair does amazing things & there are so many textures, colors and types! “Black hair” encompasses a VERY broad spectrum so people, expand your mind beyond that teeny tiny box that says it’s either weave or it’s nappy.

I get that people don’t know but some things people ask are just ridiculous!! Here are some of the Curly Hair Questions I get almost daily:

Is that a wig?

Lol! No. & no you can’t touch it.


Can you do my hair like that?!

No, I’m not a hair stylist. But you can watch how I did it on YouTube.


How does your hair do that?

 

I went to bed with my hair twisted, plaited, knotted, rolled or contorted some kind of way & more than likely it was not cute. lol! Believe Beyonce if you want, I did not wake up like this!


Natural hair is expensive! How do you keep up with all this?

It’s actually about the same. The difference is you thought having natural hair was just going to be easy when in fact, it’s still maintenance & you’re still spending money


Who colors your hair?
Jesus. No, I’m serious. It really grows this way



So you must be mixed

Yeah, with Black & African American

Well then you have to be Albino!

😑 No, no I don’t & no I’m not. No offense to Albinos but just because someone has light skin with light it doesn’t automatically make them an Albino

Rare Traits in Dark-skinned PeopleTwo naturally-occurring rare characteristics in dark-skinned people: blue eyes and blonde hair.

It’s time for another review guys! I actually got this and the last box back to back -not a regular thing but I’m glad it happened cause it means more free stuff!

In this box I received the newest products from COVERGIRL cosmetics: Tru Naked eyeshadow palette, Plumpify Mascara by BlastPro and the Colorlicious Oh Sugar Lip Balm.


CG Infl products

Off the bat I was excited about the free stuff… but COVERGIRL is not my cup of tea & I hate giving negative reviews. So I cleared my mind of all the reasons I haven’t liked COVERGIRL products in the past & tried these babies out fair & square. Will they change my mind? Here are my thoughts

Moral of the story: Keep an open mind & Katy Perry’s commercial/jingle could sell ice to an eskimo. lol!

All the makeup in this review I got for free from COVERGIRL and Influenster, but all opinions are my own.

If you guys follow me on social media you’ve seen me post my opinions about a bunch of different products -which I love to do!

So what had happened was, I started back up my Influenster account, they sent me an awesome box of goodies & I got to share them with you all!

The lashes I wore in my first GRWM video came from Influenster, along with something to battle dry winter skin, a packs of deliciousness & more!

My favorite items from the box were the beauty products! Don’t get me wrong, the treats were great too! But the beauty products last longer. lol!

For those who requested it, it’s long overdue but hey, better late than never! lol!

It’s my first Get Ready With Me & don’t worry, it won’t be my last!

So I was getting ready to go out & I love me some lashes when it’s time for me to hit these ATL streets! -or just when I wanna be Fabu *dramatic hair flip* lol! So I got the KISS True Volume Lashes in style “Posh” & Black Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe. Now I’ve only been wearing lashes for a few months & I’ve only used white/clear glue so I was a little apprehensive -but it looked great! I barely needed any eyeliner!

  Follow me on Snapchat!: BlondiesLipstk

I loved my look & I loved my lashes!! They were so lightweight that I forgot I had them on! They also look natural so they’re great for everyday use! -which I love because I can’t wait to wear them again!

You can find these lashes for yourself for less than $4 at Walmart (yes, you read that right!)

I received the KISS True Volume Lashes and Black Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe complimentary for testing purposes. All opinions are honest & my own.

My first Dominican Blow Out

Now I know this isn’t a new trend but it’s new to me -being that it’s my first one- so Imma tell y’all about my experience. Plus I know a lot of naturals shy away from it because of how much heat has to be applied to the hair. The way I look at it, it’s the same as junk food: You can have that greasy fast food burger once in a while but everyday & you’re headed to an early grave. You can put heat to your natural hair periodically but everyday & you’re gonna burn it all off! Everything in moderation!



  


This straight hair is taking some getting use to but I’m loving it! But then again every time I straighten my hair I contemplate becoming a “straight natural”. Right now I just want the rain to stop so I can enjoy it!

Christmas Day my poor lil hair didn’t stand a chance against that humidity!

What styles did you guys rock for the holidays? & do you have any tips for me to help combat this humidity?!
